Start a Home Care Business in New Jersey
There has never been a better time to start a home care business. The elderly population in the U.S. has been steadily increasing over the last decade. The U.S. Census Bureau has projected that seniors will make up 20% of the total population by 2030, with continued growth in the decades to come.
The home care industry is an appealing option for entrepreneurs and anyone who’s ready to trade in their 9-to-5 job for more meaningful work. The market is incredibly favorable for home care businesses, particularly those linked to a trusted brand.
Franchising offers a convenient route to enter this industry as you can benefit from established systems, name recognition, and the ongoing support of a successful home care business.
At Visiting Angels®, we have hundreds of successful home care franchises all over the country. If you want to start a home care business in New Jersey, read on to learn about our current franchising opportunities.
Available Locations to Start a Home Care Business
The Garden State has a population of 8,882,190 as of the most recent U.S. census. Currently, 16.6% of residents are 65 years or older. That number is likely to rise in line with the national average, which is currently 16.5%.
If you’re based in or looking to relocate to New Jersey, we have several promising locations where you can start your home care business in the state. These include:
Bordering Staten Island to the east, Linden is located in Union County and is considered part of the New York metro area. Per the last census, it’s home to more than 42,000 people, with an elderly population of 14.3%. The total population has risen by 4.5% since 2010 as the city draws new residents.
This location also serves neighboring Rahway, Roselle, Carteret, and Elizabeth.
Slightly southwest of Linden is the city of New Brunswick, which boasts a population of approximately 55,000. The elderly community here makes up 5.9% of all residents.
